A bad career move.

Real Madrid don’t buy young players with potential, they buy established players with proven quality.

Kubo was bought as a way for Madrid to sell shirts & TV rights to pay for their big stars.

But I’d love to be proven wrong.

What is being lost in this announcement is, as ESPN reports, that Kubo is reporting to Real Madrid's third-division club: "Kubo would play for their Castilla youth team in Spain's third tier next season".

It's rather presumptuous to assume that Kubo would play with Hazard on the very same team right away. He'd have to show tremendous prowess in time.
